Liverpool defender Daniel Agger is confident teammate Raheem Sterling can continue his fine form on an international level and believes he will make the World Cup Squad.

The England winger is highly-regarded across the country after making the move to Anfield two years ago, and following a gradual step-up through the England ranks he made his senior debut against Sweden in 2012.

As Agger's Denmark prepare to take on the Three Lions at Wembley tomorrow evening, the Reds ace insists that Sterling can take the pressure of the big stage in his stride.

"He can handle the pressure, or else he would not play for us, for Liverpool," he told The Guardian

"It's a great opportunity for him. If he continues what he is doing right now I cannot see why not make the World Cup squad.

"He is a great, great talent and has some qualities England can use."

While England are set to play in their final warm-up match before Roy Hodgson decides on his 23-man squad for the World Cup, Denmark will entertain the hosts at Wembley knowing they won't be crossing paths with their European counterparts in Brazil.

Despite the disappointment of failing to qualify for the summer's tournament, Agger is adamant that the Danes can put up a fight and leave Wembley with a famous win.

"We obviously know that it is a strong team we have to play, but we have come here to win and we want to win," he added.

"This is a great experience for young Danish players to come to this beautiful stadium.

"We have players who play in England, but all of the players here have grown up watching English football."
